> HOGAN SAYS TORRIE WILSON CALLED FOR WORK, WILSON DENIES IT- During an appearance on The Howard Stern show, TNA's Hulk Hogan said that
former WWE and WCW Diva Torrie Wilson has called and is looking for
employment with TNA Wrestling. Wilson immediately took on Twitter to shoot
down that rumor. "Loving my life outside of wrestling guys," she said, later
adding that that message was to address Hulk Hogan's comments on Stern's
show. "Im not," she added, referring to Hogan saying she called for work.
> DWAYNE JOHNSON LANDS ANOTHER MOVIE- Reuters is carrying an article about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson signing up
to be the leading actor in the upcoming action thriller movie titled
"Protection". The movie is about a Mexico City security operative who is
forced to smuggle the daughter of a high-ranking judge across the border
while being pursued by corrupt cops, drug lords and white-collar U.S.
criminal forces. Simon West - whose directing credits include "Lara Croft:
Tomb Raider," "The General's Daughter" and "Con Air" - will be directing
this movie. It is scheduled to start filming in New Mexico in the fall.
> MCMAHON SAYS SHE WON'T ACCEPT PAY IF ELECTED TO SENATE- Linda McMahon has publicly stated that if she is elected to the U.S.
Senate she will not take any payments for her job, waiving the $174,000 per

that turns into a profession," said McMahon's spokesman, Shawn McCoy.
"There's an enormous amount of work that needs to be done to get this
country back on track beginning with job creation and tightening of
government's fiscal belt. Her refusal to take a salary, I think, is an
important symbolic gesture that underscores her principles on this."
According to the last polls, McMahon lead the Republican primary over her
party rivals Rob Simmons and Peter Schiff.

> TONY ATLAS RELEASED- WWE has released Hall of Famer Tony Atlas, announcing on his departure on
